About Me

I was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal - but my mum is German and my dad is English. I grew up between 3 cultures and speaking 3 languages, which is why I feel best when I have a lot of different people around me! Mixing three or more languages into one sentence is second nature for me :D
I have been working as an English teacher in Morocco for the past three and half years, and it has been a wonderful experience! I love learning new languages and meeting people from around the world!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The more I travel - the more positive things I hear about couchsurfing from other travellers. So I have decided to finally give it a go myself! The best way to travel is by meeting other people, whether locals or fellow travellers. Travelling is much more than just visiting a place and taking pictures. What creates the special moments are the people. I feel like couchsurfing is a great place to meet people like that, people who make your travels memorable!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living in Morocco and becoming immersed in the culture is definitely the most amazing thing I have done! There are so many small stories and experiences linked to it, but the whole thing is one BIG experience. Witnessing the daily madness and being a part of it, discovering the country and learning the language has been an amazing adventure!

Teach, Learn, Share

Never assume anything about a place until you've actually been there!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Since I am really interested in languages, I will certainly try to get an idea of the local language too - wherever I am!
I love cooking (and eating!) and if I had the right material, I could even cook some Moroccan dishes :)
